Eyelid tissue may be sacrificed for the clearance of a tumor or from an unexpected trauma. Regardless of the reason for tissue loss, it is important for the reconstruction of the eyelids to be performed by an oculoplastic surgeon who is knowledgeable in the surgical anatomy and reconstructive techniques of the eyelids. Dr. Zatezalo may recruit tissue from the area
surrounding the eye, use tissue at a distant side of the body (i.e. mouth, ear, leg), or use synthetic material to aid in the reconstruction of your eyelids. Precise reconstructive techniques and knowledge of the ocular surface can prevent complications and lead to excellent functional and cosmetic results.
